The manager Sean got into a physical altercation with a tourist family/customer on Saturday night because the customer made a complaint about how he mishandled heckling the night before

They will hold you and your credit card hostage, make you pay for a 2 drink minimum and then never bring you your second drink. The owner is a thief who wouldn’t even give me my credit card receipt and bullied and harassed me. This place was a total joke - which is ironic because it’s a comedy club. Don’t waste your time. And DO NOT let them “hold” your credit card. Pay and cash out immediately.

We had one night left in NYC and decided we wanted to do something different than sit in a restaurant. After some research we decided on this comedy club and bought tickets online.

It was hilarious! A great evening. The 2 drink minimum per person did become costly but we were on a mini vacation so big deal. I had Blue Hawaiians and they were delicious!

I will note that this is probably not the best spot if you're claustrophobic or anxious in crowds. It was quite crowded and small, somewhat impossible to move once you're in your seat.

Hi I was in your club today and attended two shows. I bought tickets on the street and paid for 3 drinks. The first two at the first show I paid for with my debit card that had an $800 balance I also left a 20% tip. I then went directly to the second show and bought a third drink. My debit card was declined I believe due to already being used at the first show. The waiter stated he ran the card 3 times. After the show the manager asked f I had cash extremely rudely and then aggressively asked what I was going to do. I had already attempted to call my bank and due to late hour no on was available to assist in unblocking the card. The manager acted as if I was a criminal. I asked if you had a atm and she said no. She the said I had to leave my ID to go to an atm. When I returned with cash the server gave himself a tip out of my cash. I had to ask for my correct change. I had to pay the atm $5. And my bank will charge my $3. For my $9 Budweiser. Your manager was extremely RUDE!!!! And the waiter tipped himself also RUDE!!!!!! I will leave negative reviews about your establishment on every site I can find.

Packed rooms, no direction on which room your show was in (I think they have 3+ rooms), show started half an hour after the time it was supposed to, and the comedians were just not funny. They also make sure to tell you multiple times before the show starts that you have to buy drinks 2 drinks each. My suggestion is go anywhere else before going here for a show.

We were walking through Times Square last night and were approached by a few different people selling tickets. Since this trip is all about giving the (older) teens a NYC experience at all levels, we asked if they'd be interested in going. We paid 15 for the tickets, but they probably would have gone down to ten each if we had asked.

There is a two drink minimum at a lot of comedy clubs. We didn't know about it here until we got into the building, so I can see why a lot of people are upset by it. They did tell us drinks at the bar while we waited don't count, so we waited until we got seated.

The building is older, and the comedians actually made fun of all of us for being there during one of the routines. If you can't do five bars, don't come.

The routines were very adult. My older teens laughed at me cringing a couple times. If you are looking for clean comedy this is not it.

I dont know if we would go back, but I'm glad we went.

Absolutely horrendous, we bought tickets from a rep in Times Square. We were not aware of the ridiculous two drink rule, the prices of the drink are a small fortune.
We decided upon arrival we would not watch the show as it was like walking into a low class brothel. We went back to the rep, he agreed to give us our money back, he then very rudely ran away through the back door in McDonald’s while we waited, never to return.

Garbage. Wednesday, January 29, 2020. I got a ticket in Manhattan to see a comedy show here. I knew it was a two drink minimum but figured I could talk my way into getting just one drink. I don't see why you can't just get one drink or none at all. Forcing beverages upon people is no way to gain customers. This place is desperate beyond measure. Apparently they kick out those who don't buy two drinks. I didn't bother staying after talking briefly with the bartender and a wierdo at the bar. Both are losers as far as I am concerend. This place should go under soon. They don't deserve a star.

The reviews for this are crazily mixed so I thought it help if I did the full low down, so here it goes...

I'd read the reviews after buying the tickets and quite a few sent me under and would have probably stopped me from going if I hadn't already got them which would have been a shame because it was brilliant. We laughed through over 80% of it and the time flew by.

It's a 2 drink minimum but it does say this on the tickets clearly and they tell you on the way in too.

Note the show starts prompt if not a few mins early, seating begins 30 mins early I'd advise getting there 15 mins before. Once you're seated a few mins later a waiter comes over and takes your order for the 2 drinks you want (one comes straight away and the other about half way through) the beers are all bottles and are $9.50 and soft drinks are $6 and come in a large glass. This is pretty much standard prices for times square and I was actually expecting them to be dearer. I paid a lot more for drinks at Madison square garden at a basketball game and at winter gardens watching a Broadway show. We bought tickets off one of the PR's in Times Square for $20 each and allow you to turn up to any show on any day of your choice. I've read you can get them cheaper from the venue on the day or other PR's but I can't confirm this but either way it was worth $20.

We went to the 9.15pm aduly humour show and there was 3 acts on (2 of them were absolutely hilarious) then another comes on whilst the waiters come round with your drink bills and then a final act (who again was absolutely hilarious) finished the show. Note they do add 15% to your bill as an advised gratuity and bill your card automatically for it but on a few drinks it was a minimal amount, mine was $4.50 which I didn't mind.

It was so funny with some naughty humour and I'm really glad I went, it was better than some frog and bucket and comedy club nights I've been to in manchester.
